It has been years since I stayed at The Victoria. My partner and I travelled down and met up with two other photographer friends for a long weekend.
Were we disappointed? Far from it. The Victoria is a welcoming and cosy hotel. Designed for us photographers with messy boots. Close enough for our locations to shoot and return for a superb breakfast (Bamburgh sausages are the best!!). Then a shower or bath in a superb bathroom with great towels. And out to face Northumberland in the autumn. Returning you can have a drink in the bar with a great roaring fire. And friendly dogs. Then a shower followed by a great dinner. Food is not over-priced. the new menu is fantastic. I was spoilt for choice. The Steak & Ale pie I had on second night must be the best ever. Good quality products evident from the taste. A chef to keep. And what can you say about Chris the restaurant manager? I don't think he sleeps and is always cheery and welcoming. Make sure you never lose him.
It's so good to see a hoteal which welcomes walkers, photographers and dogs and still keeps such a clean ship. I can't wait to our next visit down. It will always be The Victoria for us. Highly recommended.
